Ellis Whittam is latest Glasgow employment adviser
Another provider of HR, employment law and health and safety services has opened an office in Glasgow with the arrival of Chester based Ellis Whittam.
The opening of its first Scottish office underpins the company's plans to grow its current Scottish customer base of 200 organisations. It aims to expand its Scottish based workforce from 15 currently to 50 staff within the first two years.
Established in 2004 and offering fixed fee support services, Ellis Whittam now employs 175 people across the UK.
Chief executive Mark Ellis commented: “For us, Glasgow was the ideal base to launch our growth ambitions in Scotland. We estimate that less than 20% of organisations in Scotland currently use fixed fee professional support services and we know, from the growing demand for our services across the UK, that the market potential is significant. Over the next three years, we aim to treble our existing customer base in Scotland and our investment now in new infrastructure and new talent reflects our serious intentions to grow in Scotland.”
